    I am extremely disappointed in SING LUM campus students shouldn't be able to attend a dirty/unhealthy. Also the poor teaching from teachers at thos school. Front office staff is rude & shallow. No people skills they will gossip about parents & have a attitude problem. Although the principal is nice she is leaking LEADERSHIP skills. Nothing gets done at any of the Panama school district unless you threaten to call the news or go with a group OF parents complaining. Sadly I would not recommend sing lum to anyone.

    This school has a horrible rotation schedule for students starting as young as the second grade. This is not developmentally appropriate and is not beneficial for students or teachers. The staff either lack training or are lacking knowledge in developmentally appropriate strategies for learning. Also the paraprofessionals are less than professional to say the least. The parent involvement is high and the families in the area really do care for the students.

    This school really benefited me into the 7th grade. The unique styles used by teachers the principal and the extra-curricular activities make this small school truly unforgettable!! I hope you had as good as an experience as I had.

    My two children attend this school and they love it. The teachers do their best but it appears my kids get unfairly punished sometimes. I'm strongly considering relocating.

    I moved from the SF Bay area and had my house built near this school. My child was taught so much. I do not believe they service the whole child.

    This has been a great school for our two children. Their teachers are caring supportive and very enthusiastic. The academic program is high quality.

    I currently have 2 children attending Sing Lum and 1 that previously attended and is now in Jr. High. Sing Lum Eleentary has provided and continues to provide its student with the best possibly environment condusive to learning. My children are very happy with the atmosphere and our experience with the staff and Mr. Boles the Principal have been excellent. This school provides a very caring environment and Mr. Boles continues to prove his caring concern to the children and parents by ensuring that he knows all the students and makes it a point to know all the parents. To the Sing Lum Lions parents and school staff and're the best!
